This is a fairly early prototype, you customise your loadout with different weapons, perks etc. then tackle wave after wave of enemies,
At the start of a level you are given an objective which on completion will transport you to a new level and reduce difficulty.
You die when your combo hits 0.

Play In Browser: http://levelupjordan.itch.io/platformershmup-prototype

Left click to shoot primary, right click for secondary. Move with WASD

A few issues I think need addressing are:
1. The difficulty, right now the game in general and the objectives are much too tough
2. Art and sound
3. Upon completion of an objective the spawning in a new level is too quick and jarring
4. Needs more variety

Any feedback is appreciated, even if it's just reiterating the issues I mentioned above.

Thanks!

Jordan

Really fun! Feels like a very arcadey game, sorta like a platformy Smash TV or something. I can see a lot of potential in it!

Personally I'd be tempted to grab some placeholder graphics from wherever you can find - something like the Spriters Resource will probably have plenty of stuff that fits the bill - and just see how it looks with some nice graphics on it, but that's me. Look forward to seeing what you do with it

Thanks! Glad you liked it.

There is actually an artist busy making art assets as I type so I felt like getting placeholders in for only a few days would be time/effort that could be used somewhere else wasted. I'll be sure to update the post when we have art :)
